CS 701, Course Description
CS 701 studies advanced aspects of compilation, particularly
program analysis, optimization and code generation.
It assumes a familiarity with the general design and
implementation of simple compilers (as presented, e.g., in
Topics to be studied include:
Register allocation and graph coloring.
Automatic instruction selection and retargetable compilers, especially LLVM.
Program transformations that improve instruction and data cache performance.
Local and global optimizations, including redundancy analysis,
live/dead analysis, constant and copy propagation,
code motion and loop reorganization.
Program representations, including control flow graphs,
dependency graphs and single assignment form.
Data flow frameworks and algorithms, dominance,
dependency and alias analysis.
